Doing a dessert for a small dinner party tomorrow and have a rough idea, needs refinement: ready-made shortcrust tartlet shells, chevre, creme fraiche and lemon. Suggestions?

Thanks, everyone, for the input. In the end, I kept it simple and did this variation on my grandmother's baked cheesecake.

yes, do figs! Here's a really nice one, and I bet you could sub your chevre for the mascarpone: http://www.food52.com/recipes/3700_drunken_honeyed_figs_with_lemon_mascarpone_whipped_cream/2

sliced plums and a walnut-thyme streusel?

You could do a lemon curd layer over the chevre and creme and then a bit of burnt sugar on top.
